Johnny Depp owns all kinds of interesting real estate. He currently owns a horse farm in Kentucky, his own private island in the Bahamas, an entire village in France, and several penthouses all around Los Angeles. There are rumours that he has homes in other states too, but it’s difficult to confirm them. He spends most of his time however in his condo, in the heart of Hollywood.
